demonstrations, in i believe los angeles and houston, among other places. those are posted on the web. but we have no indication of anything that is violent in nature. nonetheless, immediately after the attack in benghazi, we began outreach to a number of groups within the country, faith-based groups and others, who could be the target of a violent attack and provided them with guidance on things they can do to make sure they are as safe as possible. so we continue that outreach. we continue working with our local partners in terms of what they are seeing on the ground and then monitoring the open source media. >> thank you. let me ask you, finally, what we as a government can do to counteract the impact of this film? we are a country of almost 310 billion people now. this film, hateful, really, was done by a handful of people, and yet american embassies, consulates, not only are the subject of protests, which is very much in the american spirit of civil protests and right of free speech, but going beyond that to destruction of property and at its worst a terrorist attack on benghazi that kil

and universities, ask the mayors who are here. los angeles is getting green and chicago is getting an infrastructure bank because republicans and democrats are working together to get it. they didn't check their brains at the door. they didn't stop disagreeing. but their purpose was to get something done. now, why is this true? why does cooperation work better than constant conflict? because nobody is right all the time. and a broken clock is right twice a day. every one of us and every one of them, we're compelled to spend our fleeting lives between those two extremes. knowing we're never going to be right all the time and hoping we're right more than twice a day. unfortunately, the faction that now dominates the republican party doesn't see it that way. they think government is always the enemy, they're always right, and compromise is weakness. just in the last couple of elections they defeated two distinguished republican senators because they dared to cooperate with democrats on issues important to the future of the country even national security. they beat a republican congres
